Intro

Inside is 
A heart of summer soul 
Don't let them 
Take it away 

Cause inside 
Something solid gold 
So don't let them 
Throw it away 

Words they meant nothing 
So you can't hurt me 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't stop me 

I said your eyes, they say nothing 
So you can't hurt me 
On summer days like these 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't hurt me 

Follow 
Your own path from here 
So don't listen 
To what they say 

Cause inside 
You have a heart of gold 
So don't let them 
Take this away 

Words they meant nothing 
So you can't hurt me 
On summer days like these 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't stop me 

I said your eyes, they say nothing 
So you can't fault me 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't hurt me 

Inside 
A heart of pure soul 
A sun rising 
And falling away, like your soul 

Cause here comes 
Something wonderful 
So don't let them 
Throw it away 

Words they meant nothing 
So you can't hurt me 
On summer days like these 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't stop me 
On summer days like these 

I said your eyes, they say nothing 
So you can't stop me 
On summer days like these 
I said words they mean nothing 
So you can't hurt me

. . .



Out of here 
We're out of here 
Out of heartache 
Along with fear 
There goes the fear again 
There goes the fear 

And cars speed fast 
Out of here 
And life goes past 
Again so near 
There goes the fear again 
There goes the fear 

Close your brown eyes 
And lay down next to me 
Close your eyes, lay down 
'Cos there goes the fear 
Let it go 

You turn around and life's passed you by 
You look to ones you love to ask them why 
You look to those you love to justify 
You turned around and life's passed you by 
Passed you by again 

And late last night 
Makes up her mind 
Another fight 
left behind 
There goes the fear again 
Let it go 
There goes the fear 

Close your brown eyes 
And lay down next to me 
Close your eyes, lay down 
'Cos there goes the fear 
Let it go 

You turn around and life's passed you by 
You look to ones you love to ask them why 
you look to those you love to justify, why 
you turned around and life's passed you by 

Think of me when you're coming down 
But don't look back when leaving town 
Oh think of me when he's calling out 
But don't look back when leaving town 
Think of me when you close your eyes 
But don't look back when you break all ties 
Think of me when you're coming down 
But don't look back when leaving town today 

There goes the fear again 
Let it go 
There goes the fear 
Let it go 

Think of me when you close your eyes 
But don't look back when you break all ties 
Think of me when you're coming down 
But don't look back when leaving town today

. . .



Moonshine 
I'm waiting for a love that never comes 
Moonshine 
Wishing for a time that never was 

I'm waiting for a time 
For truth to call 
I'm waiting for a sign 
To show me all 
I'm waiting for my love 

Moonshine 
Drinking to a love that's gone on by 
Moonshine 
Look into the stars as cars go by 

I'm waiting for a time 
For truth to call 
I'm waiting for a sign 
To show me all 
I'm waiting for my love 

I'm waiting for a time 
For truth to call 
I'm waiting for a sign 
To show me all 
I'm waiting for my love 
Waiting for my love 
Waiting for my love 

Moonshine 
I'm waiting for a love that never comes

Where We're Calling From

[No lyrics]

. . .



They're throwing rocks and paving stones 
So let's go while we can 
Put your finger on the map 
Who cares where it lands 
Cause we're all better off in New York

On the road and out of town 
We're moving on again 
Everything they say is true 
This city is insane 
Every possibility 
Nothing's left to chance 
They're throwing rocks and paving stones 
Who says it has to last 

On the run 
Till we're caught in New York 
Cause we're all better dead 
Than be caught 
Maybe best not to talk 
Till New York 
Cause we're all better off 
In New York 

On the run 
Till we're caught in New York 
Cause we're all better off 

In New York 

On the run 
Till we're caught 
In New York 

On the run 
Till we're caught 
In New York 

On the run 
Till we're caught 
In New York

. . .



I want you to know this 
My anger's all but done 
Sweet Lord 
I swear I've seen the darkness 
Sweet Lord 
I swear I've seen some pain 

Satellites ahead 
So hold on 
Satellites I said 
So come on 

Here comes a strange cargo 
Here comes a light that leaves out of here 
Sweet Lord 
All I've known is badness 
Sweet Lord 
All I've known is pain 

Satellites ahead 
So hold on 
Satellites I said 
So come on 
For seven nights I slept 
Hold on 
The satellites ahead 
So come on 

I want you to notice 
My anger's all but done 
And all I've known is madness 

Satellites ahead 
So hold on 
For seven nights I slept 
So come on 

So hold on 
So come on 
So hold on 
So come on

. . .



Friday's dust 
Turned into a Saturday's 
It wasn't meant to be this way 
It wasn't meant to end so late 

Friday's trust 
A deal not brokered honestly 
Perhaps it's just a game they played 
Tell me they've not flown away 

All the hope 
And all the wonder 
All the strength that they can muster 
Won't go 
They won't get me down 

Their desire 
It seems they've got designs on me 
They never want me honestly 
They try to take me foolishly 

All the toys and creature comforts 
All the dreams they can rupture 
Won't go 

Friday's dust 
Takes all the love we own

. . .



I can't stand by 
And see you destroyed 
I can't be here 
And watch you burn up 
Lie for the moment 
And lie as a decoy 
So does it matter 
If I give in easy? 
So why 
Is it so hard to get by? 

And I say 
We so down 
But it's now or never baby 
We don't mind 
If this don't last forever 
See the light 
But it won't last forever 
Seize the time 
Cause it's now or never baby 

Let's leave at sunrise 
Let's live by the ocean 
I don't mind 
If we never come home at all 
Steal the morning 
So set in motion 
In and out of love 
And institutions 
Cause I know 
This can't last for long 

And I say 
We so down 
But it's now or never baby 
We don't mind 
If this don't last forever 
See the light 
But it won't last forever 
Seize the time 
Cause it's now or never baby 

So why 
Is it so hard to get by? 
And I say... 

We so down 
But this can't last forever 
We don't mind 
Cause it's now or never baby

. . .



I was thinking about what you said 
I was thinking about shame 
The funny thing how you said 
Cause it's better not to stay 
Sure enough if you feel nothing 
You're better off this way 
Gets to the point where you can't breathe 
It's the last word 
I can see it standing 

So here we are 
At the last broadcast 
Here we are 
Our last broadcast 

Sun on faces made us feel alive 
The colours of the sky 
Southern trees, made us enemies 
Who knows the reason why? 
You can't escape yourself 
You can't just fall away 
It comes to the point when you feel nothing 
This is the last time 
Cause I can see it in your eyes 

So here we are 
At the last broadcast 
Here we are 
Our last broadcast 

This is 
The last broadcast 
Here we are 
Our last broadcast

. . .



Fate 
Brought you 
Brought you next to ghosts 
They 
Talk in code 
Looking for the way out 
I hope, I hope 
I hope you want to live a day 
And learn to cope 
I hope you find what matters 

Through the streets and on your own 
Almost lost and almost gone 
We'll be looking all we can 
We'll be searching for the sulphur man 

Pills stop you 
Stopped you feeling life 
Fall 
Into a home 
Sympathy and all 
A soul in tatters 
A soul as black as coal 
I hope, I hope 
I wish you could find what matters 

Through the streets and on your own 
Almost lost and almost home 
We'll be looking all we can 
We'll be looking for the sulphur man 

Through the streets and on your own 
Almost lost and almost home 
We'll be looking all we can 
We'll be searching for the sulphur man 

Through the streets and on your own 
Almost lost and almost home 
We'll be looking all we can 
We'll be searching for the sulphur man

. . .



Son 
What have you done? 
You're caught by the river 
You're coming undone 

Life 
You know it can't be so easy 
But you can't just leave it 
Cause you're not in control no more 

And you give it all away 
Would you give it all away now? 
Don't let it come apart 
Don't want to see you come apart 

Son 
What are you doing? 
You learned a hard lesson 
When you stood by the water 

You and I 
Were so full of love and hope 
Would you give it all up now? 
Would you give in just to spite them all? 

Cause you give it all away 
And you give it all away now 
Don't let it come apart 
Don't want to see you come apart 

Cause you give it all away 
And you give it all away now 
Don't let it come apart 
Don't want to see you come apart 

Lay 
I lay in the long grass 
So many people 
So many people pass 

Stay 
Stay here and lie on back 
Get down in the cornfields 
Stay till we're caught at last 

Give it all away 
Give it all away now 
Don't let it come apart 
Don't want to see you come apart 

And you give it all away 
Would you give it all away now? 
Don't let it come apart 
Don't want to see you come apart 

Would you give it all away? 
Would you give it all away? 
Would you give it all away? 
Give it all away 
Give it all away 
Give it all away 
Give it all away

. . .


I hit the ground with the running at last
I didn't stop to look behind
Yeah, bad times are all in the past
I hit the ground with the running at last, all right

Ooooh, Yeah!
Ooooh, Yeah!
I hit the ground with the running at last

I said I can't wait to get in a car
Your foot's down, the city's so far
You're past the suburbs and speeding so fast
I hit the ground running at last

Ooooh, Yeah!
Ooooh, Yeah!
I hit the ground running at last

The light's still spinning upon your eyes
I hit the brakes, it's the end of line
You're way past the suburbs and speeding so fast
I hit the ground running at last

Ooooh, Yeah!
Ooooh, Yeah!
I hit the ground with the running at last
I hit the ground with the running at last

. . .


If you should fall
If you should fall
far from grace

If you should call
on him
wake up to the music again
you can feel sunlight
in your eyes

living is so useless 'round here
the city's so dangerous
on your own

how beauty dies young

but if you should fall
oh, if you should flow
from grace
how beauty
beauty fades

if you should fold
if you should fail
far from grace
far from grace

oh, oh beauty
you could know

. . .


Fuck Longsight
And Levenshulme
Same goes for Stockport and Hulme
We doing alright
Just post-house blues
Cos this is northenden in the afternoon

The kids are deranged
They love guns and kidnap
Thats just the way we do things here
The day dies down
Not a moment too soon
Under the northenden afternoon

Northenden afternoon

. . .


Heigh ho! Who is there?
No one but me, my dear.
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll give to you.
A stroke as gentle as a feather
I'll catch a rainbow from the sky
And tie the ends together.
Heigh ho! I am here
Am I not young and fair?
Please come say, How do?
The things I'll show to you.
Would you have a wond'rous sight
The midday sun at midnight?
Fair maid, white and red,
Comb you smooth and stroke your head
How a maid can milk a bull!
And every stroke a bucketful.
